    I'm curious.
    I'm asking mostly about serious gaming, like following news, buying the current generation console(s) of the time and etc since playing for fun is for everyone not just 'tempers.

    Been playing them since I was nearly able to walk, so why should I stop?

    Though this is by my own will here, I can't speak for the gaming companies/should another Video Gaming Crash happen. Though that's certainly not going to stop me from playing what I already have.

    you know, some people at a certain period of time are like oh, ok, thats enough or whenever they get married, their wife get jealous of the time games take and pushes the guy into corner.

    Its kinda funny to ask theses questions here where most kids are teenagers but, its a test subject.

    I really don't see any reason to ever stop gaming. Of course, it has to take a second chair to some of the more important things in life, but there's never a reason why you cant fire up the old SNES and have a good time when you have some free time. I usually don't buy more than one, maybe two, of the systems from each gen and I usually only purchase a handful of games/hack the console, so it's not a constant dent in my wallet. Also, my girlfriend is a huge gamer, so life is even better. [​IMG]

    Or you can always marry one of the six gaming women on Earth. ;P That and any guy worth his salt and is comfortable with sleeping on the couch can easily find something that his wife does that is as time-eating as his gaming. Unless she does absolutely nothing that is.

    Edit: Oh, and since test84 is kinda using ages here, I'm a single 22-year old male. Go me!

    Most of my childhood friends who were games like me, stopped playing, I can say like one or two are still gaming but all the rest even don't have idea of what PS2 is.

    Til I die I I I I I I I


    A lot of us say that we will game forever, but who knows. Some of us might get caught up in all this work and might not have enough time to game like we used to. I hope I don't.

    I'm sure the Grim Reaper has something to say about that.
